Whether you know it or not, DC is pulling out all the stops to make Wonder Woman one of their top-sellers by the time we get to next summer and Gal Gadot’s solo film. By bringing Greg Rucka back into the fold, Dan DiDio and Jim Lee have tapped a writer whose previous run with Diana was one of the best in her history, and a little ahead of its time in its pacing and complexity. After a long hiatus from writing for DC, Rucka’s comment was, “how can you say no to Diana?” and that bodes well.
This will be one of the twice monthly titles, with Rucka actually telling two concurrent stories: “Wonder Woman: Lies” and “Wonder Woman: Year One.” Joining Rucka on art is Liam Sharp, a terrific artist and co-founder of Madefire Comics. If you don’t know his name now, you will in a couple of months’ time, because Sharp is an artist of fine detail and gorgeous product, and, admittedly, an acquaintance whose work I’ve admired for a long time.
I predict that their delineation of Wonder Woman will be iconic, and I couldn’t be happier.
